Todd "Toddzilla" Austin
With 15 years of experience selling guitars at Corner Music, and 25 years playing in our high-profile Music City, Toddzilla is a fixture in the Nashville music scene. Known for his superior tone, fine musical skills and recognizable sense of style, "Zilla" is very well respected in a town full of great musicians.
Some of Nashville's finest guitarists recognize him as a peer, a trusted source, and even a musical mentor. Proof of this was his 2007 appearance on a downtown billboard for PRS guitars, with whom he has a long standing relationship. If it's guitar-oriented, Toddzilla probably knows the answer for you!
